    Rams OL health and their 2017 ‘Iron Man’

    The Rams had all five starters start every game this season (not including the season finale where 3 of 5 were kept out). Pretty sure they were the only team in the league to achieve that. And not only that but their starters played 4,585 of 4,776 total OL snaps in those 15 games- 96.0%. Blythe played 132 snaps off the bench and Williams 59.

    To me the message is celebrate that but prepare for that not to repeat itself again in 2018. It’s a rare feat. Improve your OL depth because you often need it in this league. And you probably need 3, maybe 4, new starting OL in 2019. Make no mistake, OL is a priority for the Rams this spring.

    And by the way, Jamon Brown deserves a 2017 Rams ‘Iron Man award’ for playing the most total snaps on the team this year- 1,125 total (offense and special teams combined).

    Blyth was also impressive when he had to come in for Sullivan. That we actually got the pro-bowl version of Sully was surprising to me I didn’t think he had that much left. It feels good to be wrong. Havenstein and Brown improved a lot this year. I guess you’d have to say Havenstein is the weak link but that’s a pretty good “weak link ” to have. Need to develop an LT while Whit can still help him and Saffold is no Spring chicken either. I don’t know why I worry about this stuff when McVay is already.

    I agree with all that.

    For me the draft is all about the OLine. Yes, they need some tinkering in other places but the OLine is critical.
